Writing 1000 th Nov.28 , 2013 The Structure of Introductory Frames - These are really your first chance to make your first impression o A poor first impression will lose the interest of audience very fast - Ways to enter into conversations - Ways to earn your ethos and logos - Want to be an active generator of knowledge - Remember it is important to adapt to your purposes - Indicate status of research professional o When the moves are used well they show the level of professionalism one has in their writing - These moves are very condensed but effective - Once you have hooked your reader you can then begin on the general topic - To have an effective logos and ethos, you have to know what people say about your topic - When you have said what you are going to say you articulate your thesis - Introduce your methods after articulating your thesis Absolutely adapt this stuff to your purposes! Never follow everything step by step. Be pragmatic about it. Make things your own. - Want to practice self-reflexivity as you estimate your reader’s expectations and experience - Think about how someone could use your work - “Tradition of inquiry”  a research paper is a way of knowing the world. It contains history and more knowledge about it Writing the Research Paper: The Introductory Frame - Think about what is your proposition. Your paper is the answer to that proposition - A good thesis is made up of a topic and a position - We aren’t feeling or using emotion, we are arguing a position about a topic  “In this paper, I will argue…” - Begin with what other people say. Figure out what the experiments have said about your topic o Remember you have to look back in order to look forward o Doing research on your topic will show your dedication and appreciation to your work o What other people have said about your topic can be used to support your work and elaborate on others’ work - Want early research to show you have engaged in what others have said about your topic - Want to shed light (illuminate) a topic and answer many questions about it - Identify knowledge deficit  add to existing knowledge - When beginning to write about you topic get to work and get to the point o don’t generalize things: “In life….” - Appositive is seen in the first example after “desensitization” o Knowledge is made here - Rhetorical
